Jason and the team,
Thank you for supporting Mezze bistro, local farmers and seasonal eating!
Nancy Thomas Co-founder Mezze Restaurant Group
Our distinct pleasure, Nancy…and thank YOU!
Jason–Your music choices are opening up a new landscape, at least to this older generation listener. Would you want to make some comments on type of music, newness, how it fits in general trend of popular music these days, your own personal interest and when that started. . .
Thank you for segment on the genocide. Thoughtful, empathetic, insightful.

this was so informative! Now I know what to use and how full to fill my pots and what some good choices are. Thank you Chad.
I wish Chad would do a regular show. He was so informative. I definitely felt mor confident about putting my own mixed containers after watching him explain how to do it. Thanks Chad!
We definitely enjoyed creating a way for Chad and Mt. Williams Greenhouses to share some expertise! Let’s hope he has time to do more sessions—he has no shortages of good ideas, I promise you. Did you see that we posted the next video in the series? Enjoy!
Wonderful interview with Eric Rudd, who has a passion for art and community that is inspiring. I especially appreciated his views on making art accessible to everyone.

Thank you for a delightful interview and for all that you are doing in the arts via http://www.greylockglass.com We need to find someone to interview you, Jason Velazquez! Bravo to you!
Deirdre, the pleasure truly was all mine. I’m in awe of your energy and enthusiasm, to say nothing of your experiences. Thank you for your generosity!

Jason–Your website is TERRIFIC! especially for the art world, but also other subjects. Like especially your getting a hold of local people like Ken Kuttner, who is an articulate guy and well worth interviewing.
Keep up the steam rolling. This area very much needs your site.
I wondered what had happened to Kate. I always enjoyed her writing.
I wondered what happened to Kate, since I enjoyed her writing.
Driving around Pittsfield, all I see is Tyer signs everywhere. I would be really surprised if Tyer does not win big in Pittsfield in November because the ratio of Tyer to Bianchi signs are something like 12:1
Also it is worth adding that Pittsfield is shedding people faster than any city or town in New England for the past several years based on percent of population. It has been this way for a while now.
Pittsfield really needs a GE replacement which it never got, just like North Adams needs its Sprague replcement.
Well I would like to see the Mohawk Theater open first and foremost. Get some decent acts playing there, like they have in Northampton at the Calvin for example. That gets people into town and helps local businesses. If that takes off, the most obvious thing that will benefit is downtown restaurants, but any store that could attract tourists would benefit. Commercial space immediately near the theater will benefit the most. But shows in North Adams for the most part haven’t been too terribly successful, until more recent festivals either.
I would be in favor of something for the kids. My post retirement plan is to open a game store and setup a LAN of PCs and charge a small fee for playtime, and have tournaments and whatnot. Not just an arcade, but large multiplayer tournaments that get people playing together and requires people to meet other players. Not as good as say roller magic was, but would be something for kids can do downtown.
Dean, I would LOVE to see a gaming center downtown! I would drop some coin there if you held tournaments there—show these whipper-snappers how an old-timer can still lay down the PWNAGE in a FPS.
Excellent! I almost started this after college but that didn’t happen. It’s harder now that I have a house and two kids to take care of. Maybe I could get some college students to work as students and make it happen though.
If not, it will be my post retirement plan. I don’t see myself having money to go on and endless vacation like some people, and I don’t see myself sitting around watching TV all day either.
Great interview! I very much enjoyed her analogies and memories. Such as her view on woman, vinyl records/albums 9, and her experience with her first piano. It was real things that many can relate too. I was not familiar with this artist until this interview on Facebook. I’m looking forward to hearing more of Lexi’s music.
Thanks so much, Sandra! We are absolutely thrilled when we discover talented artists like Lexi who we can introduce to the world. We have more great artists lined up this season, so check back with us again! —Jason

Thank you so much for such a great interview with Stefanie. We’ve been planning Soft Shoe Boom! for months, and after listening to this I’m excited to go myself! all the best to you!
Truly my pleasure. I’m so glad you enjoyed listening! Honestly though, Stefanie is so great, she makes my job easy. Hope Soft Shoe Boom! is great fun.
Great segment. Looking forward to regular reviews with Ms. Sullivan.

The Illiminati decided that World population is too huge so they plan on eliminating billions of people with war, drugs, poison (food and water), etc. Do a little research.
I agree Tela, very much needed indeed! They are a breath of fresh air.
“Is it, Janice? Is it really?”
I just sent an email to the governor’s office protesting this cut in the budget. Hopefully others will do the same.
Cathi—You are why we do what we do. Thanks for the comment!
Thank you guys! Appreciate it!

Love this lady!
Thanks so much, Sheila for saying what we all know to be true but don’t always have the courage to stand up and let it fly.
Just think what all that mud slinging slander coming from political mouths cost and how that money could help to feed so many people. It is a shame tha,t even when people get a “hand out”, that it is poor quality foods with chemicals and harmful processing agents. I strongly believe that there would be less illness, physical and mental, and fewer people addicted to drugs IF people could get good whole food nutrition into their bodies instead of pills. I put most doctors in the “Other” category for they answer to the money grabbing pharmaceutical companies. Shame on all of them!
Good morning Jason,
I’ve just listened to your interview with Gina and it sounds terrific. Well done.
what is your opinion on prop 4?

“In the Berkshires, movements are growing in response, art and lectures and performances and rallies, to explain what othering means and what it looks like — and to draw people together instead.”
